Beautiful bike. Lots of great extras.

What height is the California Scientific windscreen? I saw on their website, they have a short, med, large and XL option... how does this one compare to the stock windshield height?

I've also got so many questions about the Holeshot exhaust... Which version did you get (polished or satin black) and how much extra for the exhaust?

I have the Large Cal Sci windscreen. It's several inches taller than the stock one, but still allows good airflow at the lowest setting, and complete protection when raised all the way up (the FJR has an electrically adjustable windshield). By far the best FJR windshield I've tried, and I've been through a few of them with this bike and my previous '07.

I bought the Holeshot system used off ebay a few years ago and never got around to putting it on, it's the stainless system. I'd sell it for $500, costs $1200 new. Eliminates the cat which will help reduce engine heat, but also requires installation of a Power Commander. Here's a link to Holeshot's website: http://www.holeshot.com/fjr/fjr_hdr.html

Just took a 175 mile ride on the FJR yesterday, two up with my girlfriend. Hadn't ridden it for awhile, still an extremely fast, solid, good handling, and comfortable machine. Can haul ass at 100+ mph on the highway and not even feel like you're going over 65, leans into corners and holds a line like it's on the proverbial rails, all day comfort and spacious luggage capacity. I'll miss it, but enjoyed several long trips on it and time to clear out the garage.

Here are some close ups of the Helibar risers, really made a difference in ride comfort. FYI, I'm 6'2", 175lbs, the bike fits me perfectly, but also have shorter friends who have ridden it and love it as well. The suspension is completely adjustable front and rear, I have it dialed in to my body weight and it handles amazingly well for a 500+ lb bike.

How does your gf like the GS seat compared to the FJR? I was tempted to get an FJR instead of the Tenere. But I love the tenere.

The FJR sits a lot lower and the seat is roomier than the GS, but she says she can see better on the GS and likes the backrest on the top box.

My '07 FJR had a top box, didn't take many trips on it, but that obviously helps the passenger.

She said tonight that the FJR seemed almost cramped after getting used to the roomy GS, funny how a different machine changes your perception. Still, no complaints about the FJR, it's fast and comfortable!

It definitely has more leg room, especially for taller riders. Sitting higher makes passangers much happier ... it's like being in an SUV. I so miss my GS ... just never rode it! Sadly, just never ride anything anymore!

Best of luck with the sale.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!
